This is a rookie reader book about a girl named Bessy and how she bakes holiday cookies to celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa. After cleaning up her mess, she gives the cookies to her neighbors who celebrate the different holidays! There is even a sugar cookie recipe at the end of the book so that you and your little one can make holiday cookies as well!
